Grand Bazaar NYC is a curated and distinctive weekly market located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Every Sunday, all year-round, indoors and outdoors, over 100 merchants set-up their stands to sell the finest and most distinctive antique watches, vintage, collectibles, fashion, art, photography, handmade jewelry, furniture, and delicious artisanal foods. The market also supports over 4,000 local public school children. Grand Bazaar NYC donates 100% of its net revenue to four neighborhood public schools. The funds raised from the market make a world of difference to the schools, as they are used for art enrichment programs, teaching assistants in the classrooms, books, supplies, chess and sports programs, and many other activities that enhance the child’s experiences in a public school setting.
The original market had its humble beginnings in 1982 when a group of parents wanted to supplement the fund raising for the school with a weekend ‘yard sale’. The market became wildly successful and GreenFlea Market was created in 1985 to ensure the continuity of the operations of the market as parents and students ‘aged out’ of the schools. The GreenFlea Market has seen many changes over the past thirty years. In the summer of 2016 the market changed its name to “Grand Bazaar NYC” to reflect the current times, and to set a new and bigger direction.
Today the market is one of the largest and more unique markets in NYC, with over 43,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. The market is open every Sunday from 10am – 5:30pm. For more information, visit www.GrandBazaarNYC.org.
